Dedicated to improving the quality of legal practice in Colorado's federal courts.
Attorneys and legal professionals are at risk for compassion fatigue, secondary trauma, and burnout under pandemic conditions due to exposure to the fear, grief, anger, and overwhelm of so many people, including clients, family, friends, and colleagues. Many have felt the impact of these unforeseen periods of extreme change in our work and personal lives, coupled with often simultaneous feelings of isolation and feeling trapped regardless of one’s living situation. This presentation will help you understand the neurobiology and neurophysiology of stress and provide tools for building resiliency and managing stress during these difficult and changing times. You will also learn about free and confidential assistance available to you through the Colorado Lawyer Assistance Program (COLAP) along with other resources that are available to support the emotional wellbeing of you, your colleagues and your organization as you adapt to the ever-changing work environment.
